My parents were married on June 2, 1962. In 1978 my family was in tragic car accident, taking my father's life at the young age of 43. Today they would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.
Their wedding invitation and note cards were engraved in English script. Looking at their invitation, I wondered why the year was not noted, but saw that Princess Grace nor Jacqueline Kennedy had the year of their wedding engraved on their invitations ... so I looked into it and saw that the year is surprisingly not essential.
...but I found it was included on the cocktail napkin from their reception.
I wanted to take time today to remember what would have been another special moment in my parent's lives.
